Thanks so much for the question. As of right now, there isn't a second book in the works, but anything is possible. I have some other projects I'm working on, but I'd love the chance to continue Kyle's story. There is definitely a lot that could happen!

But be patient. Writing is a craft and it takes time to develop your voice and style. Practice. Practice. Practice. We all know what a clarinet player who never practices sounds like! It's no different with writers. Learn the craft. Finish what you start, and don't give up. (less)

The 100th Anniversary

Today is the one hundredth anniversary of the ending of WW I — also known as “The War to End All Wars”.  A person could easily write about the evils of war. Many an author has done just that, but, personally, I don’t think any author could really get it right.


I don’t think any author can do justice to the horrors of war, to the loss and tragedy that comes with each stilled heart. Not even docum...

“How do you go to sleep when you know that tomorrow your stop beating? That you are, for all intents and purposes, going to die? How do you close your eyes and let the thing you desire most in this world- time- tiptoe past you?
Have you ever been so scared, so overwhelmed with emotions that you could feel your heart, your soul, doubling over inside of you? You feel like... like you just want to escape, but you know you can't.”
Debra Dockter, Deadly Design

“I guess that's just how people are. We take for granted that we'll always have the chance to tell someone what they mean to us. We take for granted that nothing is going to happen to them, and so we all walk around not realizing how much WE'RE loved. How much WE'RE valued.”

“How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?”
Howard Zinn

“I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how peoples are set against one another, and in silence, unknowingly, foolishly, obediently, innocently slay one another.”
Erich Maria Remarque, All Quiet on the Western Front
